Mr Hague clears his diary

    I was about to tell you of frustration within the Board of Deputies that it still had not been granted a meeting with Foreign Secretary William Hague two months after making the request for one.

    The Board had become worried about British policy after the UK's UN envoy voiced hopes of seeing a Palestinian state by September.

    Prime Minister David Cameron then pressed the right buttons at the CST dinner when he offered the view that Israel was within its rights to search boats bound for Gaza.

    But fresh upset followed as the UK joined critics of Israel at the infamous UN Human Rights Council last month over the Gaza flotilla incident.

    The FO had let it be known that Mr Hague would meet a delegation once he was able to surface from the Libya crisis (which would be when, the Board might well have wondered).

    But as I was reaching for my mouse, an email arrived from the Board to tell me that the Foreign Office has now suggested some dates. Someone must have telepathic powers.
